Organization from Germany posted this Technology CallSeeking to use structural color or photonic principles to block wavelengths of light based.We are looking for technological solutions which can be applied to block specific ranges of light, Tunable from UV to NIR using structural color or photonic principles. The outcome should be a material which can be scaled up and functions at scale, ideally in a flexible or liquid environment. Classical pigments, small molecules and non-specific scattering are out of scope.
PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking novel materials and technologies to deliver new and improved performance to packaging.PepsiCo seeks to identify materials and technologies that can deliver new and improved performance to their packaging. In particular, we are seeking materials that can provide increased functionality in a few key areas: 1. Circular economy/Sustainability • With increased scrutiny on single-use packaging, PepsiCo is interested in new materials and technology that enable packaging to be reused at end of life, preferable again as packaging for the same product. • For some materials that are not readily reusable or recyclable, degradation is the preferred end-of-life. As such, PepsiCo is interested in packaging with unique pre- & post-consumer functionality, such as edible, dissolvable, or compostable films. 2. Functionality • E-Commerce: With the rise of the internet economy and increased consumer demand for online shipping, PepsiCo is interested in materials technologies that deliver new and different functionalities (e.g. protection, authentication of freshness) to the primary and secondary packaging used for e-commerce. Please note: all proposed technologies must have advanced beyond the conceptual stage.

Strategic Allies Ltd. posted this Technology CallSeeking Innovative tea brewing equipment for food outletsWe are working with a beverage company supplying the global retail and foodservice markets with a variety of non-alcoholic, branded beverages and dispensing equipment. Specifically for tea beverages (both prepared for hot and cold servings), the client currently provides its customers with beverage concentrates (e.g. syrups to be diluted) that are prepared at a centralized location or provides ingredients (e.g. tea leaf) for beverage preparation at the customer outlet. The current equipment that dispenses these branded teas for immediate consumption by consumers are:-“- Bag in Box/Concentrate Fountain Dispenser (both aseptic and non-aseptically filled); In-Store tea/coffee Brewer (for fresh brewed hot and/or iced serving); and Bubbler (prepared fresh at retail). Whilst the beverages have a great taste and the flavour is consistent, which is vital for the client’s branded products, the combined offering of equipment and beverage often lacks optimal design, superior consumer experience and choice. Our client wishes to enhance their equipment offering by providing greater equipment options to current and new foodservice partners, ensuring that the end consumers receive the best possible tea beverage, while providing its partners with a differentiated solution and value as a beverage provider.
